I always look forward to going to Atlanta to visit my sister, well, because she is my sister. Buttttt, I also love going to Atlanta because we shop, visit museums, shop,  do a little antiquing, shop and enjoy the fine dining there, and anything special that is happening in Atlanta at the time.
One occasion that was so special to me was a surprise birthday gift from my sister,  to see the "Nutcracker" at the beautiful restored Fox Theatre. What a special evening.
We love going to the High Museum, interesting exhibits and collections there, really worth spending an afternoon if your in the area. Atlanta has way to many attractions to list, but you'll find something there for everyone. Here are a few attractions you might enjoy while in Atlanta. Take a tour or two.........
